Rob Ryan: ‘Everything in New Orleans is getting blamed on me, including Katrina’

Former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan may have taken it a bit too far by some accounts, invoking the horror of Hurricane Katrina when talking about his firing, but we’ll give him a pass – he was just trying to put a good face on yet another failed job as a coordinator (remember he was also dumped by Jerry Jones not too long ago). Rob made an appearance...

Rex Ryan takes another shot at New England media

Rex Ryan isn’t done bashing the New England media. The Buffalo Bills head coach got testy Thursday after a reporter mentioned his love of talking about the Patriots, saying the Patriots beat writers were the ones who were “obsessed” with the team and “talk about them every single day.” So when his brother, former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, was...

Rob Ryan says he gets blamed for Katrina

The New Orleans Saints fired Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator last Monday after his defense was torched by Washington. His defense was ranked at the bottom of almost every statistical category, and the friction with head coach Sean Payton was enough to send the less famous Ryan brother packing. On Sunday, Ryan made his debut on the NFL Network and it didn’t take long for him to...

WATCH: Rob Ryan made Hurricane Katrina joke on TV

    Rob Ryan made an appearance on NFL Network Sunday morning, and things did not go very well. It started off promisingly enough, as Ryan delivered a pretty good line about how Washington turned his bye week into a bye-bye week. Things took a turn for the worse, though, when Ryan reflected on his firing, saying that Saints fans blame him for everything. That includes Hurricane...

Rob Ryan: Washington made my bye week a ‘bye-bye week’

The New Orleans Saints defense is a disaster, and the franchised used its bye week as a crutch to fire coordinator Rob Ryan. Ryan’s final act was a 47-14 drubbing by the Washington football team, which used a 324-yard, four-touchdown performance from Kirk Cousins to fuel the blowout and ultimately send Ryan packing. Per NFL Media’s Kevin Patra, Ryan had a clever comment about...

Just how bad is the Saints defense? Here are the numbers

For the first time since October, the New Orleans Saints will NOT surrender 40-plus points this week. I can guarantee you that only because the Saints do not in fact play this week. Otherwise, there’d be no reason to expect a defense that has given up an insane 116 points in its last three games wouldn’t be victimized again, regardless of its opponent. The Saints fired defensive...
